Secrets to a Successful Business with Ari Weinzweig
‘Having a vision and achieving it through the 12 natural laws of business’
Businesses that operate with meaningful missions, visions and values are more successful than businesses that don’t. No great news there. But building, implementing and maintaining those core values can be far more difficult than creating the business itself.
Ari Weinzweig is the co-founder and CEO of Zingermans Community of Buisinesses in Ann Arbor Michigan, a self confessed ‘lapsed anarchist’ and author of a series of books around ethical business and leadership skills. He firmly believes that the number one key to success is to have an inspiring and strategically sound vision and that our measures of success should not only revolve around the bottom line figures. Zingermans is a community of 10 businesses with over 700 employees that consistently after 35 years remains in the national and international press for its focus on good food, customer service and radical business practices. Starting out in 1982 with just two employees they now have over 190 employee owners through their shared equity business model.
Ari runs his businesses with what he calls the 12 Natural Laws of Business and he believes that operating in violation of these principles is creating an ‘energy crisis’ in the workplace. A crisis evidenced by apathy, disengagement, distrust and a lack of creativity that is having a hugely negative impact on the quality of life of both employers and employees and the businesses themselves. However, any organisation can fix an energy crisis without having to lay out big expenditures, they just need to live in synch with those 12 Natural Laws.
